Lucie’s tweet revealed that a whopping 9,351,444,446 (9.351 billion) SHIB was incinerated via a single transaction that ensued on January 09, 2024, at 8:29:35 PM (+UTC).

Details of the Whooping Shiba Inu (SHIB) Burn 

Aside from being the Shiba Inu (SHIB) fifth burn project, data from Etherscan has revealed that the incinerated 9.351 billion SHIB tokens cost approximately $93,075.43 at the time of reporting. 

In comparison with previous incinerations, Shiba Inu’s latest burn remains the largest pending when it pulls off another coins-burning project greater than 9.351B.

Shiba Inu’s first incineration initiative, which took place in early December, removed about 8.24 billion SHIB coins circulation. These tokens were worth about $75,412 based on the token’s price standings as of then. 

The second, third, and fourth SHIB burn removed approximately 8 billion tokens each from the circulating supply. Intriguingly, aside from its latest burn adventure, which occurred in January, others happened in December 2023.

43 Billion SHIB Burned Within A Month

Evaluating the statistics from the five different burn projects described above, one could deduce that the gas fees obtained from the Shibarium have succeeded in eternally eliminating about 43 billion SHIB tokens within nearly a month interval. 

The above calculations certainly explain how the Layer-2 scaling solution could become one of the Shiba Inu ecosystem’s most reliable technologies to help reduce SHIB’s massive supply pool. 


Meanwhile, Shiba Inu, through its official X handle, also revealed its total expenditures for the five tokens incinerating projects. 

According to one of its latest tweets, the meme coin platform’s X handle disclosed that Shiba Inu has spent approximately 200 ETH worth $516,000 at current prices.
